Oral Bacteria Testing
We know that oftentimes there are multiple factors that may cause changes in someone’s mouth. One of those factors could be the bacteria living in your mouth. At our Fayetteville dental office, we use clinical laboratory services from OralDNA Labs® to ensure we are giving our patients the best oral health information possible.
OralDNA Labs® is a specialty diagnostics company designed to provide reliable, definitive, and cost-effective clinical tests that guide oral health professionals in detecting and prognosing disease at an earlier, more treatable stage. We often use this testing to look for the types of oral bacteria that cause periodontal disease. These bacteria, in combination with an individual’s genetics, may result in bad breath, bleeding gums, bone loss, and eventually tooth loss. The presence of this bacteria over time also adds significant risk to a wide range of life-threatening diseases such as heart disease, stroke, and dementia. We can use this test to determine which oral bacteria is present in your mouth so that we can generate a comprehensive, customized plan to keep you healthy. If you are interested in being tested, we offer appointments specifically to test your oral bacteria levels, or often we can add in the testing the same day as your check-up.
